Week 17 of the 2022 Fantasy Football season is the final week in most leagues. Most managers who have a matchup this week are competing for their league championship. Even in leagues where the title game is in Week 18, this week will be a part of their Fantasy Football playoffs. Regardless of the format, Week 17 is likely to be a do-or-die game for any manager still alive in their leagues.

The high stakes of Week 17 make lineup decisions more crucial than ever. Managers who have made it this far into the Fantasy Football playoffs know the importance of optimizing their lineups. Tight ends are one of the main NFL positions that require a specific strategy. Streaming players in favorable situations is a proven way to successfully approach the tight end position.


Certain elite tight ends, such as Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews, are starters in Fantasy Football every week regardless of their matchups. George Kittle, Dalton Schultz, T.J. Hockenson, Darren Waller, and Dallas Goedert are close to weekly starters, while the rest of the field should only be considered a legitimate option in favorable situations. This strategy can help managers get the most out of their tight ends.

The following rankings can help managers make their final lineup decisions in this crucial Week 17 slate of games.
